RIP, Iggy the Eskimo
Dec 16, 2017, 19:01
Just read that Iggy the Eskimo, the mysterious (and naked) Asian woman on the back of "The Madcap Laughs," has recently died. Besides being immortalized in one of the most visually compelling covers in rock n' roll history, she held a Zelig-like presence throughout the 60s scene, mercurially popping up in fashion magazines, festivals, and the like, then disappearing before anybody else realized that the party was over.

Some background for those who don't know her -

What a beauty.
